My guess In the end, you should simply try which setting suits you best and if it leads to problems with your gaming experience.
This is what I would also recommend.

Here's a great site with listed input lag and info on the subject. LINK

Re: input selection for Gaming

Whichever input gave me the lowest input lag would be the one that I used...so if you can find out if any of the input modes or specific hdmi inputs give you lower latency, my suggestion would be to use that one

Nice website. I wonder if they keep it updated?

I do see some 2012 and 2013 HDTV models there, just not for all.

Wonder if there is a way to measure lag via each input? Guess, only one way is by trying a move and repeat it several times and see if that much of a lag is there???

Re: input selection for Gaming

best idea is to compare the modes when you set them up. calibrate both with the AVS-HD disc or WOW disc etc... then compare. it really is TV dependent and how much effort the mfg's put into the mode

yeah, I figure I have to do trial and error to find out which is best.

It would have been very easy to say just go to game mode and leave it at that!

But, it would be worth double checking all the various inputs and calibrate to see which shows the best for gaming!

Thanks everybody once again! Very helpful.

lol, that's what I do, though custom is my style of choice since I'm an insane tweaker

Yeah, I believe he keeps it updated.

The way I test is by using Leo Bodnar's input lag tester.....HERE. It's the same tester they use for multiple review sites to test input lag. If you don't have a tester, then you can just test with game play, like you suggested.

Re: input selection for Gaming

Thanks ElectronicTonic.

I don't have a Leo Bodnar's input lag tester nor any other tester..

So, I will do the old fashion way, do gaming multiple times on repeat and see if there is any difference.

Thanks once again for your input as well as the others! Much appreciated.

Re: input selection for Gaming

So have you ever run through your AVR to enjoy the DD sound track? Or are you using the ARC to avoid the extra lag?

I am just hooking up the gaming console to the tv directly via the hdmi slot..

Would it be better to go thru another means? Please explain the hookup procedure.
